Packers’ Dallin Leavitt makes surprising return from shoulder injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. – After Green Bay Packers rookie safety Dallin Leavitt hurt his shoulder in the preseason opener in San Francisco, coach Matt LaFleur had a ton of ominousness.

“He’s going to be out for a while,” LaFleur said.

Typically, this is LaFleur-speak for a significant injury. Leavitt would likely make the opening 53-man roster before going on injured reserve to continue his recovery. And then, at some point deep into the season, he would potentially be back in action.

“Yeah, I’ll be honest, I think most people probably felt that way in the building, too, ‘He’s going to be out for a while,'” Leavitt said after returning to practice Sunday. “I just can’t live like this, you know what I mean? I’m not okay to be out, so I’m going to do everything I can to get back.”
